Digital Week: Coming Together to Discuss ASEAN’s Digital Future
Published 17 February 2021
What the year 2020 brought was unprecedented. Even as the pandemic has impacted healthcare as we know it directly, it’s most long-lasting effects may be in the social and economic transformations it has sparked.
The world has entered a new, unexpected phase of transformation, driven by an urgent need for operational innovation. Corporations around the world are rethinking how to reach and serve customers, build reliable supply chains, ensure employee productivity and drive the sustainability agenda.
So, innovation as we know it is getting redirected. From mom-and-pop stores who hesitated before embracing e-commerce, to larger companies enabling millions of their workforce to work remotely. A positive evolution is underway as companies and their stakeholders find new ways of connecting, collaborating and keeping in pace with their evolving needs.
Looking ahead to 2021 and beyond, new questions arise as millions of users from Bangkok to Manila embrace IoT, AI, and 5G. How can we store this data sustainably? Are there vulnerabilities in endpoint security still to account for? How can SME’s leverage cloud technology as effectively as enterprises?
Simply put, it is time to get together and talk about the future of the Cloud & IT industries in this region. And so, W.Media is hosting the first ever Digital Week: Southeast Asia.
ASEAN’s Best and Brightest
Next Week, we’re gathering ASEAN’s best and brightest for a 4-day virtual conference to cover everything from datacenter deployment to digital banking. You can get a chance to network with 7000+ Senior IT Leaders across the Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnamese, Philippines, and Thailand markets.
The event will be spread across 16 countries and representing 12+ industries, featuring community forums, conference-wide competitions, and 1-on-1 networking meetings. Over 1,000 participants have already registered for the most talked about Digital Event in the region.

We are also pleased to announce that we will be joined by Government affiliates from the region, including Surina Shukri, CEO of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC). Such speakers will offer invaluable insights into what’s playing out on the ground across these markets.
